I have worked with Adam Stanley and Conexus for the past three years. As a result of this association I have undertaken several successful interim senior leadership roles in schools in a variety of circumstances. I have always received excellent support, which has included the provision of opportunities, advice on legal cover and insurances, regular contact to ensure that ‘all is going well’, and a willing ear, when necessary. I am very happy to be associated with Conexus and would recommend them highly, to both those seeking employment and to potential employers alike.
